Proliant NIC sensor unable to recognize Gen10 disconnect



I am monitoring ML350 Gen10 through it's iLO and the Proliant Network Interface Sensor is unable to recognize whether the NICs are down or not. iLO does notice the disconnection. All of the NICs, besides one are configured as HyperV virtual switches.

Does the sensor need to be configured differently or is there another way to monitor whether the NICs are up/down?

I ditched the Proliant sensors and swapped to SNMP Traffic sensors. They recognize disconnected NICs correctly
